Updated roster needs for the Buffalo Bills one week before 2022 NFL Draft
Buffalo Bills Roster Need: Interior Offensive Line
The good news for the Buffalo Bills is that after cornerback, there aren’t any major pressing roster needs. The Bills have enough talent, both starting, and depth, to be confident the players they have on the roster can get the job done but if the right player fell to them, it wouldn’t be surprising to add to the position.
One of those positions is the interior of the offensive line. The Bills were able to sign veteran Rodger Saffold to a one-year deal and bring back Ryan Bates this offseason. They also re-signed Ike Boettger, but he is coming off an Achilles injury and it remains to be seen what he might be able to do this season.
At center, the team did extend Mitch Morse and he now looks locked in as the starter for the next few years. However, there isn’t a clear backup to Morse on the roster.
As the team saw towards the end of the season, depth on the offensive line is critical so finding a player who as a rookie could backup at both center and guard would be a great addition. He could be a backup as a rookie and then potentially replace Saffold in the starting lineup in 2023.
